I did not recognize any information that he was giving so I proceeded to call and got on the call with a representative that told me that I would be served at one of the addressed listed if I do not pay a certain amount I repeatedly inform the rep that I did not know of a XXXX XXXX, and or another name they called. The rep went on to say that they are XXXX company that is representing them I asked why I have not been served and how can I get a summons on acct information that I did not sign or authorize use. The rep kept insisting that I make monthly payments and or full settlement offers. I decided to move forward with my complaint because I felt that I was being threaten to make a payment ore I would have to go to court, I do have the conversation recorded on my phone and the voicemail that was left.
